Daily Tip: Each of the 5 playable races in Guild Wars 2 will have access to race-specific skills

A Look at ArenaNet's MMO Manifesto

Posted Thu, Aug 12, 2010 by Xerin

ArenaNet has recently released a new video detailing their MMO manifesto and reaffirming their stance on making Guild Wars 2 different than the other MMOs out on the market. Here at Ten Ton Hammer we've taken a look at the video and the followup posts. What does the video mean and what details can we summarize from it? Questions like this and more are answered here at Ten Ton Hammer.

The video itself contains a lot of interesting background shots of the world. It starts off with Divinity’s Reach, then moves on to a Charr tower using cannons to bombard the ground below, and finally shows an epic dragon battle. Toward the end we’re given a bit of a teaser about the undersea dragon that we have almost no details about currently.


The video and a detailed look at ArenaNet's MMO manifesto is now available. Be sure to stay tuned here to Ten Ton Hammer for coverage of Gamescom where GW2 will have playable demos.

We take a look at how Guild Wars 2 helped pave the way for the horizontal progression revolution.
